    My husband and I were really excited when opening our wedding presents because we got not one but two pie birds (one black and one white). We only got married two weeks ago, so they haven't seen pie yet, but they will! :)

    Also, I wanted to say thanks for putting this picture up. I used as inspiration to make a felt pie (only two dimensional) for a costume based on the nursery rhyme. I couldn't find a single good picture of a "real" pie to work from, so it was very helpful to me!

    We recently saw a cooking show (Alton Brown's "Good Eats") in which he made apple pie and discussed the need to let the steam escape. He explained "Pie Birds" as well, and now of course we want one. Looking to find some to give as Christmas stocking-stuffers.

    Glad to be of help!

    These seem to be very much a UK thing ..... I looked on Google but couldn't see any US links but this might be of interest to you:
    Good luck with your hunt!

    Did you make this one? This is incredibly clever. I can't believe this is only a hobby for you. You need to quit whatever else it is you're doing and do this full time. Woman you have talent!

    thank you for your kind words! Yes, I did make it .... and it is still a hobby ...... but maybe if I did it full time then the 'fun' might go out of it!
